PEM. certificate given. Is this okay to push out using GPO?

I was given a .PEM file certificate for an application we use. I try to push it out using GPO but it wont show up. I normally use a .cer file. Is this okay and how come it does not work? Thanks

A PEM is generally a DER certificate encoded in base64 instead of binary.  You should be able to push it out via GPO.  Either rename it to .crt, or choose "all files" from the file type dropdown when browsing for the certificate.

yup. most CER files are actually pem, just rename the file extension :)
